My real name is Ken Boyette. I was given the nickname Kenwick Von Strobe by the
guys at a recording studio where I was an engineer in the
early 1970's and it stuck with me. I was once a student of design at
NCSU, but being a sort-of musician, a drummer, I decided to pursue
recording and analog design as we had to build a lot of our own
equipment. Over the years analog led to digital, and I designed digital
stuff because there were bills to pay. I founded two successful companies based on open
microprocessor busses: STD and VME, and I believe in open standards.
I've learned a lot, and still do, and would like very much like to pass
on what little knowledge I've accumulated in hopes that someone else can
figure out what to do with it from here.
The appellation "primary colors" refers to a small collection of colors that can be combined to form a range of additional colors, but which "small collection of colors" should we use as our primaries?
Today's FPGAs already integrate a substantial amount of "stuff" (MCU cores, programmable fabric, on-chip memory, etc.), so what's left to integrate and why is this being left for the future?
To celebrate Geek Pride Day, Sylvie Barak has created a mega-cool infographic that depicts how geeks have been building the Internet since 1832.
When traversing serial links with optics or backplanes, high-speed signals are degraded by impairments in the link, such as insertion loss, reflections, crosstalk, and optical dispersion.
Can statistical or heuristic verification really work for FPGA designs?
